to have revenues as part of it but he's using vague generalities and using sort of a romney plan that you can find it in the tax code. in reality the arithmetic doesn't add up if he's talking about the charitable interest deduction, mortgage deduction. the question for mr. boehner is show us the money. >> mitch mcconnell spoke hours ago sounding not at all like he heard last week's election results. >> the time for the president to lead is now, and that means offering a concrete plan that takes into account the fact that half the congress opposes tax hikes. >> congressman, did the election happen? do i wake or sleep? what is this man talking about? >> well, he's kind of out of it. here is the dilemma he has that really he has got to think about whether he can maintain his leadership position. he could be the next richard mourdock. he's got a tea party group in his state going -- that's going to be after him in the next election. so what he's got to do to try to appease them is totally in conflict with what the leader of the republicans in the senate has to do for the good of the count

. romney's expense? >> no, that's true. that could be part of it. in other words, if what romney was talking about was putting a cap on deductions that would apply for folks say over $250,000 -- >> i think he described it in terms of a bucket, a bucket theory. >> it wouldn't get us to where it would need to be, so there would still have to be going back towards those clinton rates on folks above $250,000, but limiting deductions for people in the really high brackets could be part of it. in fact, that would deal with the hedge fund rip-off really where folks who claim that their income is all capital gains, pay 14%, this is the mitt romney deal, forevus everyone else in their income category paying 30%, 35%. >> congressman, final question, are you confident that some kind of agreement can be reached before january 3rd? >> i'm hopeful, but i'm not at all confident. in fact, i'm very skeptical. >> hang on a second. you started with hopeful and now you're skeptical. >> i'm very skeptical. >> you're very skeptical. >> that's right. >> congressman peter welch, thank you, sir. >> thank you

romney is a big part of that. >> that's a fascinating theory. >> that's a footnote for it. it's great. >> yeah. conspiracy theorists would say it was all a plan to get obama care implemented. bring romney in, he'll lose, and it will be a validation for obama care to go forward. we have a cheeky metric by which to measure romney's popularity to say, in the hours, the 24 hours following his loss, his likes on facebook fell by more than 10,000. that's a steep and sharp decline. you know, the question is as you said, self-identified romneyists perhaps will not exist. what are romneyists? do they represent some moderate wing of the party that will get overrun by the tea partiers and voices like newt gingrich that think it's all about being more conservative? what does to be a romneyist mean? >> if only he had been clear enough throughout the campaign to say. look, yeah, i mean i think that there's -- to be a romneyist is i think at bottom to be a pra pragmatist, to see government not as an arena for ideological struggle, but as a, you know, as a place to solve problemsp. i think within fiv

romney and use it as an overall tax reform. >> yeah, i mean, the ultimate idea here is we want to extract more dollars from the wealthy as part of a shared sacrifice in entitlement cuts. what does it matter whether you label it a deduction cut or 39.6% tax increase? ultimately, you're getting more dollars from this very top group. in fact, this may even be more progressive than 39.6. i'm a little confused as to why there's so much opposition. maybe just because romney proposed it. >> plus, you're simplifying the tax code. that's really an important part of this. you're eliminating some of those special interest fights and loopholes that exist. >> and zerlina, let's face t the election is over. obama has won. just because it was a romney idea, does it make a bad idea? >> no, i'm not saying that anything that romney proposed is a bad idea. i'm saying that it is a fact that he proposed ideas without giving any details. we haven't even really heard any of the specifics behind this particular plan, not to mention the fact that voters voted for $250,000 and above for their tax rates to

part. if you say to yourself. and i remember standing there during the debate when romney went after me on this, and you say to yourself, do you have any idea what that's going to look like as a 30-second ad? and of course, romney did worse with asian-americans than he did with latinos. and the reason was pretty simple. the obama message was after they get done deporting them, they're coming for you. so he literally did -- nobody's picked this up yet, but we used to carry the asian-american vote. we've managed in 12 years to totally throw it away. it's almost inconceivable we would do as badly as we did with latinos. the obama campaign began advertising on univision, i think in early may. and i said one-third of the republican effort should have been in the latino community. if you have a zone that's going to make or break you, you better figure out how to carry it or it'll break you. that was a significant part of where we are. and the republicans are going to have to come to grips with immigration. and how do you deal in a humane way with grandmothers? i deliberately use that imagery
